Can you buy an 809e in the states? I've only seen overseas owners who own them. I kinda like the slide on the e better.

Never heard of the "e" designation. What are the differences?

Same here. Pics I've seen of it look no different than the regular 809.

Yep, slide serrations and horizontal line on slide. I like both guns, it'll be my next purchase. Have the early problems been cleared up with these?

I have read where some had ejection issues, casings hitting shooters in the forehead. And some issues with triggers not resetting.

There are a few of us around here that have 809s that will occasionally throw a casing straight back. Maybe 3 out of 50 casings. Mine doesn't hit me in the face though, it usually goes up and hits the top of my head.

As far as the trigger failing to reset, I can on ly remember one member having this issue. Not widespread by any means.
